What will Brandon Ghee bring to the roster? Some of you are thinking, “Who the hell is Brandon Ghee?”
Brandon Ghee is one of the young free agents we brought onto the roster who has large potential. He was one of the first players we brought in during the offseason. He was one of the only pieces we added to the secondary in the offseason. Then we brought in Jason Verrett in the draft and added Brandon Flowers after he was release. The team is hoping that some of this potential in the secondary will pan out.
Ghee was taken in the 3rd round of the 2010 draft by the Cincinnati Bengals and showed potential while on their roster. He just never got the opportunity to play because of injury problems and because he was stuck behind a talented group of players. In San Diego, he will get his opportunity. The secondary is a bit crowded, but in a division that has Peyton Manning, we can never have enough guys that can lock down defend.
The Chargers are leaning on his potential. They were hoping that he can stay healthy and give the team some good reps. He isn’t someone that will be relied upon to contribute a ton during the year, but he will get his opportunities. The limited reps during the season could keep him fresh and keep him away from that injury bug.
I look forward to seeing what Ghee can do on the field. I don’t have many expectations for the young corner, but anything he is able provide to the roster will be nice to see.
I expect him to be battling for one of the last secondary spots on the roster at the end of training camp. He has a huge hill to climb. Jason Verrett, Shareece Wright and Brandon Flowers already look like they have roster spots locked up/ Steve Williams is not far from locking in a spot. Richard Marshall was the starter at the end of the year and will be looking to hold onto a roster spot. Ghee will have to impress some people.
